I can't understand why Trotz hasn't sat him yet. He has to be moving him.. this is not Doug and Cap.. Trotz sees this sht. He is killing his system.

Trotz hasn’t sat him because Trotz knows that he doesn’t have the winger depth to do so.

How can he sit bailey when kuhnackle is on the other side? Sure beau could move back up bit if he didn't it would be barzal with moonsuckle and Ross the loss. At this point ladd is welcomed back and he blows too.

I know you are saying the same thing I'm just expanding

Also lets be honest with all this team chemistry stuff, this team cant score without tons of work they need someone who can score at times just on raw skill. A trade is needed you have great goaltending and team d this year add to it of you want to go anywhere. I'd take a series win and 2 is possible as well. East is open and Tampa Boston matchup wouldn't be till eastern finals after they beat each other up. The isles have the easier road to get there but they need to make a move

I agree with this summary of where the Isles stand, going into the trade deadline. (It might be the most intelligent post Upstate has ever written, but yes, I recognize that's a low bar.)

Been saying I’m on the fence forever with this but yeah you’re right. If they want to be successful the rest of the season/playoffs they need to add some scoring depth. It’s an obvious hole in our team. Not sure what Lou is willing to offer up to remedy it though if anything at all? Going to be an interesting next few days no matter what happens.

Yea at least I have faith in lou and what he will do. He may not give up the farm for ufas but I think a move of some sort is coming. Isles have a lot of very good d prospects and can afford part with one and the 1st this year. Do they move beau or maybe eberle so a team gets something back? Not sure of eberles value unless he were to be sent back to say Columbus to replace panarin somewhat, maybe the wild for Staal?

No question it's hard to see a long playoff run with the current offense. I'm not willing to give up much more than Bailey and a #1 though.

As reported teams have been scouting us so you have to figure something is in the works. I wonder what kind of value a MVS or Aho has to another team? I would think Lou is reluctant to part with Dobson or wahlstrom. I do believe our first is in play based on nothing really just think he doesn’t have an issue parting with it with our existing prospects.

It’s almost like Bailey thinks he may be on the trading block and he doesn’t want to go😂😉

I don't know..."team chemistry" is a strange thing. It's more about attitude than ability. Everyone buys in right now, and that's why team D is so good. Mess around with the wrong pieces, ship out the wrong person, or bring in someone who's only interested in piling up points so he can get a monster deal in July, and it can all fall apart quickly.

I'm not saying they shouldn't bring anyone in, I'm just saying it can be more complicated than just adding a scorer or two to the current group and expecting everything else to motor along the way it's been.

I look at it like this...I expected this season to be an evaluation one, and mostly a throwaway transition season with the really big decisions being who to hang on to and who to let go before what should be a really busy offseason. The way they're playing came completely out of nowhere, it's been a nice surprise and a great ride, and if they can add a piece to help it along even more, then great. But I don't consider it imperative that they win now, and I hope they don't make any moves now that handicap them for what will need to be done in June and July.

Conversely this could be 1 great year and they regress and miss a chance. I think eberle is as good as gone anyhow maybe move him possibly for a top player. Really the barzal line needs the most help they have zero chemistry currently (I know you mean team chemistry) but we can't have our most talented player keyed on in the playoffs and expect ladd and kuhnackle to pick up the pace. Sure the 4th line is scoring but relying on them to win a series isn't the best bet. We will know in the next 6 days what lou has decided
